The combination of Raman spectroscopy with AFM empowers the correlation of the information gathered by both techniques simultaneously. Conventional Raman spectroscopy with AFM enables the acquisition of chemical information in conjunction with the surface topography. To perform analysis with highest spatial resolution in the nanometer range, TERS integrates the Raman-enhancing benefits of the SERS-effect and the accuracy of the closed loop positioning of Bruker's JPK NanoWizard AFM.
With this easy-to-operate setup, users can achieve hassle free high spatial resolution Raman information. By the modular and flexible design of the Bruker setup, it is easy to upgrade any existing Raman spectrometer. Implementing automated communication, a user-friendly data acquisition is enabled, bringing the sensitivity and spatial resolution of Raman measurement to a next generation level.
